ISIS ‘inside’ Aussie jail


A MURDERER locked in a supermax prison has a Facebook page that is being used by known extremists.

Australian­s fighting for ISIS terrorists in Syria have been in contact with the page for Masood Atai, who murdered a stranger in Sydney in 2010.

One extremist’s rant on the page asks “Allah to make him among” those fighting jihad in Syria and Iraq. The 24-yearold Afghani refugee is not eligible for parole until 2028.

The page mocks prison authoritie­s by claiming he works at “Goulburn Supermax Prison”.

He has also taken a selfie – confirmed to be inside one of Australia’s most secure prisons – sporting a large beard.

The page has connection­s with Melbourne men who share his extremist views, as well as known criminals.
